suppliers to further investigate the issues. president obama is nominating mary jo white as the next leader for the sec. "if confirmed by the senate, i look forward to using all of my energies working with my fellow commissioners and the extremely dedicated and talented men and women on the staff of the sec." white is a former u.s. attorney and defense lawyer for white- collar crimes on wall street. she famously took down mob boss john gotti. "she's a bit of an unknown on wall street. we know she's a tough prosecutor and she's never been in any kind of financial services job. the sec is more than just prosecuting bad people, it's also a regulatory body, about writing regulations, so i think wall street is going to take a wait- and-see attitude." that was james bianco of bianco research. the president also wants richard cordray to continue his role in leading up the consumer financial protection bureau. legislation that would dramatically change america's gun laws is now on the table. lawmakers have unveiled the assault weapons ban of 2013, a bill that would prohibit assault weapons and high

. if you complain, you get deported. a >> fernando garcia, one of the big issues and some of the differences between the senate proposal and president obama's presentation is -- and the devil in this will be in the details, what is after a decided in congress. but the senate version would require the certification that the border is secure before anybody could pass from contemporarily and the united states to being able to apply for permanent residency. i have been struck by the enormous expenditures already that the government is spending. i noted in my column this week, the federal government spent $18 billion last year on border security, which is more than the combined budgets of the fbi, marshals service, the secret service, the dea, the atf -- all of these other federal law- enforcement agencies. their total budgets for only $14 billion. we are spending a huge amount on border security already. your sense of what the president is saying on the other hand that he doesn't want to have this kind of certification, that he has already secured or wants to secure the border

the argument president obama centered his candidacy on social issues. what about today with the fiscal environment the united states is facing? what we have better discussions during these debates that centered more on the economy? >> i think in the end, this one did come down to the economy. the president may be basing his second term on social issues. if you take his inauguration speech as a guidepost to where he wants to go from here. but i did not hear him to talk a lot about the campaign -- during the campaign. the economy began to get better. i did not see him spending a lot of time talking about gay rights during the election. i did not hear him talk very much about gun control. i think it was mentioned once in one of the debates. i think they thought they had to get -- what they concentrated on, in some ways, this was not so much an election about issues as it was about identifying their voters and getting their voters to the polls and recognizing the demographics in this country were changing dramatically. they figured that out and how to get people to the polls and republican

since richard nixon. barack obama doesn't dell gate. he dominates. and i think both chuck hagel and john kerry may well have to get used to the fact on the big issues, and it should be the president ultimately who makes the big decisions but consequential and effective secretaries of defense and secretaries of state help shape the policy. and that really remains to be seen. in an obama second term. jenna: let's go bigger if we can for a moment. because the questions about the president's relationship with israel, again are one ally in this region, have been a constant questioning over the last four years. now we're going to be in a new term. regardless what happens with senator hagel and whether or not he heads up the pentagon which is expected, what do you i think the damage is of those questioning of our administration and our loyalty to our ally? >> well, i think the reality is if barack obama, and again, this a two-way street. benjamin netanyahu is not an easy guy to get along with. protects the interest of his country. sometimes those diverge with ours. but if barack obama wants to

questions for president obama as some claim his second term agenda seems to put the issues of jobs and the economy on the back burner. in spite of that, his approval rating has improved of late, but today an associated press raised these concerns saying, quote: in politics power resides in the moment. any immediate economic setback or the perception of one could weaken obama's clout or at least distract him as he carefully tries to put his imprint on initiatives dealing with immigration and gun violence. let's talk about it with a.b. stoddard, an associate editor and columnist for "the hill." a.b., the president has been mostly talking about immigration and gun violence lately, and yet we still have an unemployment rate at 7.8%. if labor force participation were the same as when he took office, it would be over 10%. we've got a fall in our nation's economic output in the last quarter, and you've got new, um, shrinking of consumer confidence. those are some pretty big issues. does that threaten to derail what the president wants to accomplish? >> well, it will. you mentioned before

not figure out what they believe in and how to fight obama. >> are they on the wrong side of social issues? >> shear what they should do. they could be on some of it but it is not the social issues but the big questions. the country is going broke. and want not be big government but they cannot frame it in a way that says we don't care. >> what about speaker boehner and mcconnell and the leadership. >> there is no pro growth agenda to create jobs. there is nothing aspirational. you are right on social issues. there is no tolerance. bottom line, there is nothing for a voter to --. >> here is speaker boehner, react to what he said about the president. take a listen to this. >> so, we over the next 22 months, we will be the focus of this administration, as they attempt to annihilate the republican party. let me just say, i do believe that is their goal, to shove us into the dust bin of history. >>gregg: is he right? >> of course, but what president doesn't try to annihilate the opposition especially if they help him do it. in this case the republicans have each time they have negotiated with

between bebe and obama is cool and distant. >> rose: there is the factor did netanyahu campaign on issues concern to most reallies, focusing more on iran, which is a concern, but by not including a whole range of economic issues, and all the military role of the ultra-orthodox. >> yes, i think the ultra-orthodox and their place in israeli society is now come under a very different kind of scrut 93, and people are coming to a very different conclusion that a lot of the particular rights that they have, both what they do and whathey don do, are just not fair, and certainly that was what was important in the emergence of this party because they were saying, "look, we've got to have the orthodox play their fair share, pay a fair share and play a fair share in what's going "o." >> we should probably give some background. it's a complicated picture. there are two extremes of orthodox in the pick. there are religious nationalists who live in the settlements and live throughout israel why where-- if you'll forgive me-- where it matters. and they go to the military in increasing numbers. that's re
